Jericho 5-10-2007

Recommended Posts

Holy sh1t. That was an episode or what?!?!?

 

 

I can’t believe they killed off Johnston. This is the first time [since Bobby being shot] that I’ve been angry at a show. I loved his character. Now we are going to have to deal with the mother being a cry baby.

 

And heather realizing she is in the wrong camp [federal government]. The dude responsible for all the nuke attacks is like the VP of the new United States and has Jericho in his sightes.

 

Man I can’t wait until next season. This was one helluva show. Two :D :D to the writers.

Was kinda irked that they killed off the best character too. Very irked in fact. I think that's gonna cause alot of people to not tune into it now.

Looking forward to next season as well, although last I heard it wasn't definite it was gonna come back. Has this changed?

I don’t think he is dead. If he is dead then kudos to the writers for having the balls to kill off the best actor/character on the show next to Hawkin. But you are correct it will not be the same show with out him.

Officially, CBS releases their line up tomorrow at some shindig but it doesn't look good.

Yep, heard it was gone. This sucks. :D

 

One of the 3 or 4 shows I watched. I guess it didn't fit in to the CBS audience of 62 year old ladies.

This is utter BS. I cant believe they would cancel a show like that who had 10 million viewers.

Maybe they realized that they shouldn't have cancelled this show.

"Jericho" Back in Action? That's Nuts!

Posted Jun 5th 2007 3:06PM by TMZ Staff

Filed under: Gossip/Rumors, TV

 

For all you super-obsessed "Jericho" nuts out there, worry no more!

 

CBS is steps away from sealing a deal to bring "Jericho" back from the TV graveyard for at least eight episodes, this according to TVGuide.com. An insider was quoted as saying the deal hinges on signing the actors to new contracts and finding a soundstage to house the show's sets. The series, which focuses on a small Kansas town coping with a new reality after a series of nuclear attacks by terrorists, could return as soon as mid-season. Kaboom!

 

Jerichoholics have launched all sorts of desperate campaigns to resurrect the show, including bombarding TMZ's email accounts with pleas. People -- listen up -- we can't bring back TV shows!!

 

Diehard fans have also sent shipments of peanuts to CBS in a move to persuade them to pickup the series. The peanuts were an allusion to a bit of war-cry dialog in the final episode. "Nuts!"

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Fans trumpeting the cause of CBS' canceled drama "Jericho" have caught the network's ear.

 

CBS, deluged with calls, messages and shipments of nuts signifying viewer displeasure, is reconsidering its decision, a source close to the production said Tuesday.

 

The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly. A decision on whether to bring the show back, probably for a midseason run, is imminent, the source said.

 

"We are tired of the networks (not just CBS) tossing aside quality programming," was the message carried by jericholives.com, one of several Web sites protesting the cancellation. "Enough! We're going to fight for this one."

 

Clarke Ingram, a "Jericho" fan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a spokesman for jericholives, said he was optimistic that CBS would find a way to revive the drama about a Kansas town isolated by a nuclear terrorist attack.

 

"People would paint this as teenagers in tinfoil hats" rallying behind the show, said Ingram, 50, an operations manager for two radio stations. "That's not what this is. These are educated professionals."

 

The show's daring premise, its writing and acting make the case for its survival, he said.

 

Several factors could work in the show's favor: It appeals to the young adult viewers sought by advertisers and was one of CBS' most popular shows streamed online, indicating an audience beyond that measured by traditional ratings.

 

CBS may also be considering the dent a long hiatus put in the show's viewership, the same scheduling misstep that hurt ABC's "Lost" and NBC's "Heroes."

 

The network apparently has been impressed by the display of viewer passion, which included the delivery of 50,000 pounds of peanuts to its New York offices. In the season finale, a character replies "Nuts!" to a demand that the beleaguered town of Jericho surrender.

 

That's the same response that a U.S. general in World War II made to a German demand for surrender at the Battle of the Bulge.

 

There's already been one positive outcome: CBS is donating the protest peanuts to charities, including one that sends care packages to troops overseas.

To the Fans of Jericho:

 

Wow!

 

Over the past few weeks you have put forth an impressive and probably unprecedented display of passion in support of a prime time television series. You got our attention; your emails and collective voice have been heard.

 

As a result, CBS has ordered seven episodes of “Jericho” for mid-season next year. In success, there is the potential for more. But, for there to be more “Jericho,” we will need more viewers.

 

A loyal and passionate community has clearly formed around the show. But that community needs to grow. It needs to grow on the CBS Television Network, as well as on the many digital platforms where we make the show available.

 

 

 

We will count on you to rally around the show, to recruit new viewers with the same grass-roots energy, intensity and volume you have displayed in recent weeks.

 

At this time, I cannot tell you the specific date or time period that “Jericho” will return to our schedule. However, in the interim, we are working on several initiatives to help introduce the show to new audiences. This includes re-broadcasting “Jericho” on CBS this summer, streaming episodes and clips from these episodes across the CBS Audience Network (online), releasing the first season DVD on September 25 and continuing the story of Jericho in the digital world until the new episodes return. We will let you know specifics when we have them so you can pass them on.

 

On behalf of everyone at CBS, thank you for expressing your support of “Jericho” in such an extraordinary manner. Your protest was creative, sustained and very thoughtful and respectful in tone. You made a difference.

 

Sincerely,

 

Nina Tassler

 

President, CBS Entertainment
